ISU Extension and Outreach Offers Cooking with Fresh Herbs

(Decorah), Iowa  – Join us on Wednesday May 8th at 4:30PM  and learn about cooking with fresh herbs. Cooking with fresh herbs is a great way to add flavor to food without using lots of salt, sugar and fat.  Come and explore ten common herbs that you can grow in your garden, in a pot in your kitchen or on your patio.  The classes will include information on:

  • how and when to add them in cooking
  • how to identify ten different fresh herbs
  • how to substitute fresh herbs for dried herbs in recipes.

You’ll have a chance to sample a recipe with fresh herbs and also learn ways to preserve the herbs you grow.

To register for the class, contact Allie at the Winneshiek County Extension and Outreach Office at (563)-382-2949). There is no fee for the class.
